An Austin FavoriteThere is so much to like about Paggi House. The food is fresh and delicious. The service is top notch and the patio is very relaxing for drinks with or without a meal.
It's just a lovely little place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time - GREATBooked Paggi House for Mother's Day Brunch, first visit after living years in Austin. A lot hipper than I thought it would be, and the menu and service were incredible. Highly recommend brunch at Paggi House!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA HitHad company from France and the UK come to visit. All are seasoned travelers and have eaten in many of the best restaurants in the world - from tiny Asia Pacific islands to the City of Lights. We all agreed, we could not have chosen a more appropriate place for this wonderful reunion. The food was superb. The rabbit as fine as in Germany; the lamb - well we could have been in New Zeeland; the scallops - close your eyes and dip your feet into sand or at a wonderful bistro in Paris. The wine was one of our friend's favorites which he can find no more. We laughed our heads off. The waiters were delightful participating in our joy. The hostess, gorgeous, charming, warm and welcoming. What a delightful time. Joy every bite of the way.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had eaten brunch beforeI had eaten brunch before and was looking forward to the buffet; however, they have now changed their Sunday menu to a 'select three'. I was wary but actually each course was excellent, well prepared and presented, and at $35/person, not cheap but reasonable. You can't beat the service and the ambiance is perfect for a Sunday morning. I will continue to recommend the Sunday brunch menu to friends and will go again myself.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite! I am veryMy new favorite!

It's a romantic setting for couples, great for groups, brunch, or for a happy hour get together. The views of lake Ausin, the city skyline combined with the candlelit surroundings and the fabulous menu and wine choices make this place a must dine in my book. I've dined at Paggi House going back to my Junior Prom in 1984 and today it is better than ever.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, amanzing atmosphere,Amazing food, amanzing atmosphere, great wine. Have never had a bad experience here.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMnice.Great service. Great food. Except, my husband ordered and was very excited about the rabbit....but our waiter said that they decided not to serve it b/c it was too dry...while I do appreciate that, it was somewhat disappointing....oysters were great, my bacon wrapped salmon was great. Overall, nice experience.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMeal and service was veryMeal and service was very nice. Waiter had extensive knowledge of food and preparation techniques.

Our positive experience was everything she hoped it would be. Try the specialty drinks at the bar during Happy Hour. They were great!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA pleasant spring eveningVisiting from the DC area, we were eager to find a place to enjoy good food in an outdoor dining situation, Paggi House did not disappoint. We had the tuna appetizer, snapper and grouper (special) entrees, and a most pleasant bottle of Chablis. All three dishes were well seasoned and very flavorful. The only complaint isthat the sauce with the grouper was too sweet and tended to overpower the very fresh and delicate taste of the grouper. The wine list, while extensive and interesting, is really quite pricey (rather shockingly so). However, our waiter recommended the reasonably priced Chablis, which worked out well. Service was very good, and we were kept apprised on the status of our orders as the proceeded through the kitchen.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Sunday BrunchI was expecting the fabulous Sunday Brunch, served very Sunday, but was pleasantly surprise by the fantastic special Easter Sunday menu.My family sat out doors, enjoyed eachothers company while enjoying wonderful food. We found it was all reasonably priced.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI went with my family forI went with my family for Easter Brunch. They had a special menu - which was outstanding! We all chose different meals, but we all loved them. The service was great and we enjoyed the view of downtown from the patio outside. Thanks for making our Easter so special!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch w/kids...We had a wonderful Easter brunch at Paggi house. We had 4 young children with us and requested patio/outside seating, which they honored. I would have given outstanding scores for most of the features; however, they didn't officially have a "children's menu" option. It worked out, but the dishes were a bit fancy for the kids (ie- french toast was 4 little round pieces of bread topped w/bacon; delicious, but most kids are accustomed to a more simple option; also, waffles on the "fancy" side w/spices in them). Our server, Shea, was fantastic. We loved the patio seating w/the kids. Nice setting outside in general. Definitely nice brunch place if weather nice & know patio is fantastic option for happy hour or dinner too! Thx!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPaggiHad been to their Sunday brunch before and was sad to see they did away with it.
Nevertheless, everyone in my party enjoyed the food. Me being mostly vegan, it was a bit hard to find something. If I was an avid meat eater, I'd be all over it, though! Beautiful atmosphere, service was great, and the inside bar atrium room is my FAV! I want to live in it. The outside is very pretty, too.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTook family visiting in townTook family visiting in town for dinner. We had a great experience. The food was great (we shared several small plates and one large plate). Our sashimi was divine. The grouper special was perfectly cooked and full of flavor. The foie gras was creamy and rich a great way to finish up our main course. The desserts were positively delicious. We had some very, very good butterscotch-coconut ice cream, along with their seis leches cake. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially in great weather, as their porches are lovely.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place. We hung outLove this place. We hung out for hours. The food was perfectly cooked. Red snapper tasted fresh. Every things was amazing!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lamb chops but terrible musicSome of the best lamb chops I've ever had! The "boil-in-bag" concept is genius. Only problem was the music. Dr. Dre and the Stones are not appropriate for such a special restaurant. (This seems to be a problem in all nice Austin restaurants ...)3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. We haven'tFood was great. We haven't been to this restaurant in a long, long time and it was a very nice experience. Wait staff was very helpful with menu choices/descriptions. A tad pricey, but overall a great meal/experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious brunch. Ask forDelicious brunch.
